The Dark Magic of Kellyanne Conway
New York Times, by Frank Bruni

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 1/11/2017 7:15:34 AM

If you happened to watch CNN on Friday morning, you saw a brutal exchange about Russian hacking between a righteous anchor with steam coming out of his ears and a right-wing operative with ice in her veins.“Chris Cuomo bulldozes Kellyanne Conway,” said a headline in one of the many publications so impressed by the encounter that they reported on it. If you happened to watch CNN on Monday morning, you saw that Conway was actually back with Cuomo for more. Surprised? Then you don’t know the first thing about her. She’s no mere mouthpiece, no measly surrogate.

At this point in time,I think Ms. Conway is Trump´s best hire.She can handle the uppity,fake news media without batting an eye.Along with Trump´s daughter,these are real powerhouse women,not the fraudulent stiffs the left runs out there.

If he tried, Frank Brunei could not have picked a worse time to write this kind of fake news and feculent opinion piece of horse manure. Kellyanne is quickly becoming a national treasure, while Chris Cuomo -- who would be flipping hamburgers if his last name wasn´t Cuomo -- will be swept down the drain along with his now-outed buddies Jake the Fake Tapper, Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper and all the other alt-left liars drawing paychecks from CNN.

Kellyanne and Ivanka have broken the so-called "glass ceiling" without much fanfare. The Democrats have no one to compete with them. Hillary is getting older by the day and looks like it. With her and Nancy Pelosi´s Botox wearing off, they both look like witches. Kellyanne will put them all to shame.

Gee Slimes, when BO and his people asserted themselves and slapped you around all you did was swoon over BO and ask "Sir could I please have another?".

Your indignation of a Political Agent doing EXACTLY what they are supposed to do is farcical.

YOUR job is to gather facts and present them to your readers, something you have unflinchingly refused to do for quite a while.

However, you do snarky very well.

This NYT fool is doing his darnedest to smear Kellyanne and it isn´t working.

The "dark magic" is TRUTH, and this poor, incompetent, dishonest leftist stooge can´t even recognize it any more, so it must be some sort of ´dark magic´ because none of their very best spells or very best witch doctor´s lies from The Mad Cow and Cuomo seem to be able to defeat it.

Truth. The left can´t even see it or recognize it any more. They certainly cannot defeat it.

God bless you, Kellyanne!

The New York Times and Bruni have major issues with Conway. The reason? She has shown them to be the incompetent and "fake news" hacks they are. She has made them irrelevant and goes on their programs only to continue to show the whole world how out of touch they are. She´s literally owns them.

Every time I watch Conway I think she is the female version of Newt Gingrich. She is not fazed by the bs questions thrown at her and has a logical and profound response to them. Thankfully the Republican Party has independent female thinkers and not some talking point idealogs like the Dems put forward.

This is the first NY Times article that I have read on this site all the way through. It reminded me why I never, ever do that and why I never read the NY Times anymore. I will never get those few minutes back. Bruni is a hack as are most of the NY Times reporters.

Given the president-elect´s performance at his press conference today, I am so happy to know that DJ Trump and his stellar staff, make the Lame Stream Media, the Frank Bruni´s of the world, heads explode. Spill your brains, Frank. You are so yesterday.

Why the Trump administration
has so many vacancies
Politico, by NANCY COOK, JOSH DAWSEY    Original Article
Posted By: Honeybadger- 4/11/2017 7:38:29     Post Reply
Hundreds of key jobs across the federal government remain vacant as a result of an overworked White House personnel office that is frustrating Cabinet secretaries and hampering President Donald Trump’s ability to carry out his ambitious legislative agenda. The process is bogged down as a result of micromanaging by the president and senior staff, turf wars between the West Wing and Cabinet secretaries and a largely inexperienced and overworked staff, say more than a dozen sources including administration insiders, lobbyists, lawyers and Republican strategists. Trump personally oversees the hiring process for agency staff by insisting on combing through a binder full of

The Trump administration invited leaders of congressional intelligence panels to review documents it said raise questions about whether government spy agencies improperly identified President Donald Trump’s campaign officials and associates in the course of routine foreign surveillance.In a letter signed by White House Counsel Donald McGahn, the administration said Thursday it was responding to a March 15 request from intelligence committees for “documents necessary to determine whether information collected on U.S. persons was mishandled and leaked.” It asks the committees to probe whether the intelligence was properly gathered, whether names were improperly revealed and “to the extent that U.S. citizens

A former State Department IT technician who set up Hillary Clinton´s private email server in her home may face criminal charges for avoiding multiple subpoenas to testify on Clinton´s email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter on Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Session asking that Bryan Pagliano be charged for ignoring multiple subpoenas requesting that he testify before the Oversight Committee. Pagliano was responsible for managing Clinton´s private server and also served as a senior adviser to the former secretary of state.

Nearly 2,000 people are believed to have died from opioid overdoses last year in Massachusetts, a record tally of death and suffering that came despite widespread public and private campaigns to stanch the state’s addiction crisis.A state Department of Public Health report released Friday showed that opioids were confirmed as the cause of 1,465 deaths and suspected in 514 additional deaths. Opioids killed or were suspected of killing five times more people than died in car crashes.The main culprit appeared to be the drug fentanyl, which was present in an increasing number of cases, even as heroin-related deaths declined.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear.
